Mobile worker applications allow them to report observations, perform procedures, communicate with the central control room, and initiate or execute work orders. Improved Equipment Maintenance Wireless tools such as handheld PCs allow field workers to access maintenance histories, instructions, and other diagnostic information on the spot. This data help maintenance personnel debug equipment problems much more efficiently. Mobile workers can immediately track or report inspections, tests, and repairs. Improved Operation Accuracy Task lists, work procedures, and operation guidelines can be electronically accessed. This functionality helps field workers to finish process operations more accurately. The work completed by the operators is recorded, transferred and synchronized with control or maintenance systems in real time, helping to reduce errors. Emerson s Syncade Smart Operations Management Suite enables the mobile worker to be more productive. Wireless communications enable access to relevant documents, guidance through procedural steps with work instructions, confirmation of proper equipment and materials, authorization of actions, and automatic data collection. The mobile worker can do more in less time and reduce variability in operations. DeltaV Operate mobilizes your operators and allows them to monitor and even control your process from anywhere within the plant. They no longer have to rush to perform actions away from the central control room. DeltaV comes installed on the Class 1 Div 2 handheld PC and securely communicates with the central DeltaV control system through the wireless plant network. The wireless plant network mobilizes plant operators by allowing them to securely communicate with the central Ovation control system. No longer tied to the central control room, they can monitor, maintain, and even control the process from anywhere within the plant. Ovation remote access works with tablet or industrial handheld PCs, some with suitable zone classifications. AMS Device Manager mobilizes maintenance and reliability personnel by enabling live access to smart field devices from anywhere in the plant. They are always connected to the AMS Device Manager system with a single tool to manage all devices. Tasks that must be done at the device such as performing partial/full stroke or proof tests of safety valves are easier and more accurate

9 Create a view......of your plant s security, process and safety information with the wireless video solution. WIRELESS VIDEO PROCESS DETECTION & SECURITY Video monitoring in manufacturing facilities has traditionally been used as a security function for the benefit of viewing events gone by if used at all. This is still very useful, but thanks to advanced network technologies, wireless video can serve as a more vital component. More and more plants are actively incorporating video into their risk management and operations programs to improve plant security, personnel safety, process operations, and environmental compliance. With the right implementation, plants can realize significant benefits and improve the bottom line. Emerson s Smart Wireless solution for video monitoring uses industrial grade wireless cameras to communicate data to a central recording system that allows for live viewing, playback, and historical archiving. Emerson offers best in class discreet camera and positioning systems including explosion-proof and pressurized camera enclosures, high-security housings, video matrix systems, and advanced digital video recorders and thermal imaging systems. Real-time video monitoring, event documentation and improved situational awareness can provide immediate benefits in these key areas: Security Security requirements by federal, state, and local officials can be met quickly and cost-effectively with a wireless video deployment that monitors the area perimeter, entry points, and remote locations at a much lower cost than a wired video solution. Advanced video analytics software can be used to automatically detect suspicious events or behavior without having to continuously monitor dozens of screens. Safety In hazardous areas of your plant, having an electronic eye on potential problem areas can help reduce personnel exposure to areas of risk and can quickly alert you of spills or emergency situations. Real-time video monitoring can also enable an additional all clear visual before the execution of a process start-up, shutdown, or turnaround. Process Efficiency Wireless video cameras in remote locations or in the field can enable more effective communications between remote sites and control rooms for improved troubleshooting. Mobile wireless video conferencing technology can quickly connect people with remote sites on demand and in real time. Thermal imaging enables monitoring of high-temperature applications and assets that are subject to overheating to provide early warning for prevention of abnormal situations. Emissions monitoring With video monitoring for plant emissions, fines can be kept to the minimum through accurate demonstration of exact start and stop times to regulatory officials should an emissions excursion occur

10 Bridge the gap......of your plant s physical distances and obstacles with a control network wireless bridge solution. CONTROL NETWORK WIRELESS BRIDGE Often times the control room is remote from a controller, or separated by an obstruction like a road or body of water. Wired communication links can be cost prohibitive or impractical. Wireless technology can easily connect control system units securely at lower costs. Control network wireless bridging is a stand-alone solution to allow fully redundant wireless communications. Eliminate Islands of Automation A wireless bridge between two DeltaV or Ovation automation system units is a seamless solution that can integrate these islands of automation to enable plant-wide data integration. Reduced Cost Wireless technology significantly reduces the cost of bridging remote unit connections by eliminating the cost of the cabling, conduit, labor, as well as the engineering costs of laying cable across large distances, difficult terrains, or public property. Wireless bridging solutions also allow you to shorten deployment time, so you can quickly enable new applications that are not available in the remote area. Expand Control Wireless solutions allow you to expand an existing control system to manage new process areas that could be operated and controlled over a redundant wireless communication link from a new remote control room separated from the existing control room. The wireless bridge saves the cost of trenching and installing fiber optic cables. It also eliminates any risk inherent with trenching within a live process area. Control System Bridging Expertise Emerson experts will work with you to determine the needed requirements for your specific process application to ensure that you can maintain control even during process upsets when high bursts of communication occur. Emerson provides applications and guidance for monitoring the wireless network proactively to provide early warning of potential communication outages.

11 Location awareness......helps you find and protect your people and your assets. SAFETY MUSTERING AND EVACUATION LOCATION TRACKING Workforce safety is your highest priority. Having full visibility to personnel location and hazardous areas is extremely critical to an efficient evacuation in case of an emergency. Accounting for your people in a real emergency with clipboards and walkie-talkies is time consuming and difficult when every moment matters. Real-Time Monitoring With a Smart Wireless solution for safety mustering, during emergencies and drills, personnel entering a mustering station are automatically confirmed and recorded via an RFID Wi-Fi tag that they wear. Instant reports and map identification can be viewed in order to monitor the evacuation in real-time. Event Recording Reports provide accurate mustering data and event recording. You can automatically view personnel status as signed-in, mustered, or off-site. Regulatory Compliance A wireless safety mustering solution can reduce or eliminate fines resulting from poor performance in regulatory safety drills. Location tracking of people, equipment, or goods provides better visibility and enhances plant safety. Emerson s Smart Wireless solution for location tracking uses receivers, annunciators, and RFID tags to accurately monitor people and asset locations. The solution integrates Wi-Fi, chokepoint, and RFID technologies in a single network infrastructure to address different location tracking needs. general area. Location information is displayed to central control room operators, allowing them to locate a specific asset or direct the nearest person to a plant anomaly or maintenance situation. General area Wi-Fi coverage also enables Distress Alerting. Personal RFID tags equipped with a panic button can send an immediate alert to the control room along with real-time location of the person in distress. Specified Area Location Chokepoints within specified areas of the plant are monitored using RFID annunciators. Operators viewing an onscreen dashboard of the site can see which area a person or asset is located in. Chokepoint technology provides instant and accurate alerts of movement from one area to another, including hazardous or restricted areas. General Area Location Received Signal Strength Indication (RSSI) within a general area Wi-Fi mesh infrastructure enables personnel or asset location estimation within a Precision Location Time Delay of Arrival (TDOA) receivers within a pervasive Wi-Fi mesh network accurately pinpoint people or asset whereabouts through RFID tag signals more precisely. With a pervasive TDOA location tracking solution, Injury Alerting is possible. If a person is not in motion for a pre-determined amount of time the personnel tracking system can immediately alert the control center of the problem so that assistance can be sent quickly and efficiently. The benefits of location tracking include: Location of distressed or injured person Location of assets and equipment Workflow process enhancement Determination of a workers presence Enforcement of Authorized Area Restrictions

12 Choose a solution......that delivers secure, consistent, and reliable wireless communications. NETWORK INFRASTRUCTURE KEY COMPONENTS OPEN. RELIABLE. SECURE. Smart Wireless solutions for plant operation applications include key components that all work together to deliver a secure, consistent and reliable wireless infrastructure. Mesh Access Points Outdoor wireless mesh access points provide a universal standard network infrastructure for easy integration of all the wireless applications in your plant, including video, personnel and asset tracking, and mobile worker productivity solutions. They allow client devices to connect to the network and communicate. Mesh access points are class I, Div 2 certified and support dual band radios compliant with IEEE a and b/g standards. The number of mesh access points to form the backhaul mesh needed for your plant depends on your applications and the geography and structures in your plant. Root Access Points* These are exactly the same piece of hardware as the mesh access points, but they join the wireless to the wired network. They communicate wirelessly with the mesh access points that are strategically located where you need wireless. Wireless Control System (WCS)* The WCS allows network managers to design, control, and monitor enterprise wireless networks from a single location. It oversees a series of wireless LAN controllers, which are responsible for network-wide wireless functions such as security policies, intrusion prevention, RF management, Quality of Service (QoS), and mobility. This software provides network management including diagnostics and troubleshooting tools to keep the network running smoothly. Wireless LAN Controller* The wireless LAN controller manages access points. It provides real-time communication between wireless access points to manage mobility issues and deliver centralized security policies to ensure only authorized users and devices are able to access the network. Backhaul Mesh Network The backhaul mesh ties all of the access points together into one wireless network, replacing the cable that would normally join the devices together in a wired solution. The mesh access points self organize, find each other, and create a robust mesh network. Client Devices Any client devices that are certified for Wi-Fi b/g radio communications will be able to utilize the wireless plant network infrastructure. These include PDAs, handheld PCs or laptops whatever is appropriate for your wireless solution needs. Root Access Point Seamless Integration to Wired Network Wireless LAN Controller Backhaul Mesh Wi-Fi Coverage Client Devices Wireless Control System Mesh Access Points Root Access Point Open Standards The industrial mesh access points are designed for industrial Wi-Fi deployments. Standard mesh network is certified for hazardous environment (Class 1, Division 2 / Zone 2. Group B, C, D United States/Canada/Europe) Supports dual radio (802.11a, b/g) Has multiple power options (Power Over Ethernet, etc.) Compliant with Wi-Fi Protected Access 2 (WPA2), which employs hardware-based Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) encryption between wireless nodes to provide end to- end, enterprise-class security Reliable Communications The Wi-Fi network uses mesh technologies which is not only self-organizing, but also self-healing. The intelligent mesh protocol dynamically optimizes the best route to the wired network within the mesh, mitigates interference and ensures high network capacity. If interference occurs, the network automatically re-routes to a better communication path. In the event of an access point failure or blockage, there is a coverage hole in the system. When the system detects such a hole, wireless LAN controllers automatically adjust power on adjacent access points to cover the area where the failed access point provided service. It also supports quality of service (QoS) for all data applications. Robust, Embedded Security Emerson offers powerful and comprehensive secure solutions to enable confidential communications, policy controls, and threat defense capabilities to protect information and systems from wireless attacks. All wireless communications from the client device to the mesh access points and between mesh access points back to the wired network are encrypted using the WPA2 and AES standards.
